I think there is a problem with the MSSQL connector because I have different result if I connect with "Add a MSSQL spatial layer" or with "Add vector layer"/Database/MSSQL !

With a localhost Database, I agree everything works fine. But in this example, I don't use a local database, it is located on a virtual network through VPN (database is on a server, and I connect to this server through a VPN).
- if I connect with "Add vector layer"/Database/MSSQL (host=\\SQLEXPRESS), I can connect to spatial vectors, it's OK
- if I use the same connection with "Add a MSSQL spatial layer" or with QGIS Browser, I have this error message "[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Échec de l'ouverture de session de l'utilisateur 'XXXXX\\XXXXX'. [Microsoft][Gestionnaire de pilotes ODBC] Échec SQLSetConnectAttr du pilote QODBC3: Unable to connect"

The thing is I need to have access not only to spatial layers, but to the whole database. And without the data connection, I can't.

Thanks for the answer.

Is this still an issue with 3.2? I suspect it's just down to the difficult "magic" connection settings required for sql server connections.

In 3.4.1 this exists when connecting to sql server 2016. But only when not in trusted connection; then I cannot access any table/view, even spatial in the database.
